The Story

In 2012, Chris & Elijah bought Nine North Wine Company, a 50,000 case/year operation that produces appellation-specific Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Zinfandel and Petite Sirah under six labels. With so much wine to play and create with, one day they were joking about doing away with variety, appellation and historical blending techniques traditionally employed, and just focus on making a wine that tastes really great and over-delivers for the money. Chris dropped the F-bomb, “Let’s do it!” The first F Bomb Red was a blend of Grenache, Mourvedre and Tannat which sold out immediately. Chris and Elijah continue with the original goal of making a blend that is fun and tastes incredible without the traditional limitations. Hence, the blend varies widely from year to year depending on their whim of the moment.
